Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Sher Muhammad Abbas Stanekzai said that they have completed all preconditions for recognition and now is the time for the International Community to come forward and recognize the IEA.
Speaking at a convention in Paktia province, Sher Muhammad Abbas Stanekzai said that security, rule of law, and full control over Afghanistan’s borders are major preconditions for recognitions that have been met by the Taliban.
The Deputy FM who was also a key member of the Taliban’s negotiating team during US-Taliban talks said, they have been busy negotiating with the US and European countries for months and the talks are yet to be finished.
“No negotiations have been carried out between Pakistan and Afghanistan on Durand Line. No Afghan government has authority to decide about the line as this is only the authority of the Afghan people.” Said Stanekzai about the recent conflicts over the line between the borders guards of the two countries.
It comes as both Afghanistan and Pakistan’s foreign ministries have shown interest in resolving the issue through diplomatic means.
